Team Moments 💪

After so many hackathons, long work days, and study fests, we realized how common it is for people to forget to take care of themselves. From the research we gathered, we learned that taking small steps towards your wellbeing can significantly improve your productivity and performance.
What it does 🤳
HackYourWork is an SMS messaging system that reminds you to take the necessary health breaks while you work to give you overall better performance and increased productivity. It will send you scheduled text messages to remind you to do things like drink water, stretch, get a snack, etc.
How we built it 🔧
We built HackYourWork using ReactJS, Twilio API, Flask, HTML/CS, and JS.
Challenges we ran into 😢
We came across multiple challenges around scheduling our messages and how to set up a system where messages don't overlap one another and we don't get duplicate messages. We also ran into problems trying to schedule multiple people/phones.
Accomplishments that we are proud of 😁
We were able to fully intergrate our frontend and backend as well be able to send SMS messages through the Twilio API.
What we learned 🧠
We learned a tremoundous amount about APIs, Web Dev, and using python packages like time and schedule.
What's next for HackYourWork 👀
For future updates, we would love to be able to implement multplie users using the service simultaneously as well as more personalized messages.
